If you are involved in a complicated
personal injury claim, you should probably consult a lawyer who can help you go through
the process of getting compensated for your damages. You shouldn’t
go to your real estate lawyer for advice though. Personal injury cases
require a certain expertise, which is why you should always look for a
good injury lawyer to handle your personal injury case. This is not that
easy though, because how do you know what makes a good injury lawyer?
Get Some Referrals
Ask friends and family whether they know and have experience with any personal
injury lawyers in the area. Also enquire with lawyers who you have hired
with success in the past, but practice in different legal areas, whether
they can recommend a good injury attorney. Lawyers often refer cases to
other lawyers and if they don’t want to hurt their reputation, they’ll
refer lawyers who they truly believe are skilled at what they do. Local
bar associations also often have referral services that you can use to
find state bar association approved lawyers.
Don’t just hire a lawyer based on a referral. While a friend might
have had a good experience with a certain injury attorney, that doesn’t
mean their style and personality will also suit you. Schedule a consultation
(they should be free) with all the lawyers that were referred to you to
find out which one would be the best fit.
Ask Ample Questions
During the free consultations, ask as many questions as you can about the
lawyer and their practice, and also about your case. Ask how long they’ve
been practicing injury law, how many injury cases they’ve handled,
and if they were for the plaintiff or defendant. Also make sure to ask
if the lawyer you speak with will actually handle the case themselves
or if it would passed on to another lawyer at the firm. Next, talk about
your case and ask how the lawyer would handle your case and if they could
give a ballpark figure of how much the case might be worth.
Once you’ve chosen your injury attorney, make sure that there’s
a clear fee agreement contract made up and make sure to regularly keep
in touch with your lawyer to see how things are progressing.
